AceShowbiz - Meghan Markle solidified her return to Hollywood. More than two years after she and her husband Prince Harry stepped down from their royal duties, the Duchess of Sussex took another big step in building her family's life in California by joining Hollywood agency WME.
On Thursday, April 27, it was announced that the 41-year-old has signed with William Morris Endeavor as the talent agency revealed she will build her business ventures with them. "We are honored to announce that WME now represents Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex in all areas," the agency stated in a press release.
"The agency will be focusing on building out her business ventures across multiple facets of the agency and its broader ecosystem, including film and television production, brand partnerships and more," WME's statement, which was published on Instagram, continued.
Since her move to California in 2020, Meghan has reportedly been approached by a number of other agency rivals. With this signing, the former "Suits" star will have Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel, Brad Slater and Jill Smoller in the team representing her.
WME will also represent Archewell, Meghan and Prince Harry's content creation label. As for the Duchess' vision of her signing, Variety reported that while acting used to be part of her career before marrying Harry, it would not be her focus this time around.
Meghan herself has talked about what she thought about her works in the entertainment industry back in 2022. In a cover story for Variety, she stated, "So much of how my husband and I see things is through our love story. I think that's what people around the world connected to, especially with our wedding. People love love. I'm not excluded in that sentiment."
"For scripted, we want to think about how we can evolve from that same space and do something fun. It doesn't always have to be so serious. Like a good rom-com. Don't we miss them? I miss them so much," the mother-of-two further added.
